Why choose Al's drum school?
LEARN FROM THE BEST.
Founded in 2018 Al's Drum School is the culmination of decades of drumming passion from the mind of Alex Moody, a professional touring musician who's played at some of the UK's largest venues. Alex's passion for music and drumming shines through in everything we do here at Al's Drum School and it's his unique and exciting approach to teaching that makes Al's the number one choice for those looking to not only have fun with drumming, but also master it!
LEARN IN WAYS THAT SUIT YOU.
We appreciate that not everyone learns in the same way, which is why we offer all our students a wide variety of lesson types all carried out by fully enhanced DBS checked staff & teachers. Whether you want to come down to our studio, learn via video chat from the comfort if your own home and kit, or if you want to learn on demand from anywhere with our selection of courses and videos, we've got you covered!
LEARN THE AL'S WAY.
Our approach to teaching is unlike anything you've seen before. We incorporate our experience of being professional drummers with decades of experience to instil our knowledge to our students, we don't simply open a drum book and say "play this"! Everything you'll learn at Al's will have context, meaning and experience running through it, so that when you leave you'll not only know how to play the drums but you'll know how to play the drums in your own way!
